25 of the Best White Paint Color Options for Family Rooms

This family room has a consistent white tone to its ceiling and walls that has built-in shelves and cabinets flanking the fireplace with a white mantle.

White paint is a great choice for any room in your house, including family rooms. There are hundreds of shades of white paint choices, some with cool undertones and come with warm ones, but no matter which shade of white paint you choose, your family room will be gorgeous.

White paint exuberates a clean and classic look, one that can be paired with a variety of other colors. It is a simple color yet there are so many shades and hues to choose from in the white paint family. It is a great color, not only for the walls of your family room, but for trim, ceilings, doors, and cabinets. If white paint was an actor, it would be great in a supporting role since it can back up any other color scheme.

White paint can also be difficult to judge for a room due to the color changes that can happen because of the undertones in the shade of white you choose and the way the light hits it. For example, if there are green fields or grass right outside of a window in your family room, it could give your white walls a greenish or bluish undertone. If you fill your room with various colors of furniture and accents, it can change the way your white walls, trims, or doors appear. You also have to be cautious with the color of drapes or curtains you choose for your family room so you do not change the tone of your white paint throughout the area.

White is a fun color to use and there are literally hundreds of color choices when it comes to white paint. It can even be a little overwhelming as to which shade of white you should choose and which will look the best in your family room. Remember, even though it can be time consuming, paint is the least expensive way with the most impact to change up any room in your house.
